Project Take A Stand – Listening to the Voices of Protest

Protests, demonstrations, and uprisings have occurred throughout American history in response to various forms of oppression. From the formation of Civil Rights organizations to the creation of movements like Black Lives Matter, previous and recent events are both critical parts of our history—important for us today and invaluable for future generations to understand ongoing patterns of racism and police brutality.  Reactions via protests and demonstrations occurring throughout the state of Indiana, across the nation and around the world often result in positive societal change.

Since 1830, the Indiana Historical Society has collected and preserved items that document Indiana’s past. This history has the power to unite us in our ongoing desire to build a better future. By listening, learning and striving to understand, we will continue to collect materials and hold conversations about all aspects of our history and how that history has shaped our current environment.

How to Help:
Help us collect and preserve the different perspectives and experiences of protest. We have set up a special online resource that will allow you to share your stories, photos and other items.

Upload your resource here

Below are examples of what we’re looking for:

  • Writings (eg, reflections, poetry, journals)
  • Photos
  • Drawings, artwork
  • Short videos (limited to 100MB file size, for larger files please email: takeastand@indianahistory.org)

Please take the time to read and respond to each of the fields in this form before uploading your item(s) for consideration. Materials added to the collection will be available for all present and future researchers to access, so it is important that we have your permission to use and share the items you submit. It is also important that our digitization and archives team have a basic understanding of the object you are submitting, so please share what you can about the items.
